The Secret Spy Clue by Clue
Anna Swiss, the owner of famous hot chocolate company Swissational, is found dead. Who killed her and why?
Can you figure it out in 15 clues?
Swissational is famous for its secret recipe for their hot chocolate.
The company’s ads always show the special room in their headquarters with a giant safe surrounded by guards in uniforms.
Anna told her father, Johan, recently she didn’t want to work for the company.
Anna liked to travel all over¬¬ the world and stay at expensive resorts, which her father hated.
In fact, the VP of the company heard Johan yelling at her last week although he didn’t hear exactly what they were talking about.
Anna had recently visited the safe where the secret recipe was kept.
A guard at the safe said it was unusual because no one ever visited the safe and because Anna told the guards to take a break while she was there.
The guard decided to call Johann and alert him as to how strange the request was.
Johann told the guard not to worry about Anna’s visit. His exact words were “Don’t take your job so seriously.”
When asked, Johan told police they used his mother’s recipe. He had learned it and memorized it when he was a small boy.
Anna was seen last month meeting with Milton Penn, owner of a large competing chocolate company.
After that meeting, she went on a huge shopping spree, spending a million dollars in one weekend.
Milton’s company started advertising a new product coming soon: hot chocolate.
The new hot chocolate launched last week. The reviews said it was terrible. Milton’s company lost a lot of money.
Anna got a text from Milton the day she died, saying “We need to meet. You cheated me.”
